I am a piper in the Southwestern PA area keeping bagpipes and tartan active and in the public eye for all to enjoy.
Piping in Greene County, and the surrounding area including Southwest PA, parts of West Virginia, and Ohio.
I've been playing the bagpipes since I was a junior in high school. Shortly after graduating from high school, I joined the Cameron Highlanders, playing with them and teaching my old high school pipe band while earning my degree in music education. I'm currently the Pipe Sergeant of our Grade 3 band.
I am an experienced bagpiper in the DC/MD/VA area. I have been playing pipes for 15 years, and I perform and compete with the MacMillan Pipe Band.
Member of Cincinnati Caledonian pipes and drums. Experience in many types of events. Solo pipers/pipers and drums or full band available for hire.
I am a Retired US Navy Veteran, available for Funerals, Weddings and other events. I have graduated from the Jim Thompson Piping School in Flagstaff, Arizona.
I specialize in Military Funeral Honors.
I have a YouTube Channel called "Bagpiper Phil".
A little about yourself: I have been a bagpipe enthusiast my whole life, as my mothers side of the family is Scottish. My brother and I have been playing bagpipes since I was 14. For the past 22 years I have played bagpipes for wedding, funerals, special events, parades and was even the official bagpiper for all Kansas State University Commencement Ceremonies and other special events. I have even had the opportunity to play for occasions in Europe, the British Isles and here at home. I would be honored to play for you in any capacity. Please contact me with any questions or special requests. Sláinte mhaith!
